On Monday, August 8, 2022, IShowSpeed made a bet with his audience. The stakes were If he loses a Fifa 22 Game he would break his beloved Play Station 4 Console. In this article, I’ll be going over who the internet personality IShowSpeed is, deeper detail on what caused the bet, and how the event took place.

Who Is IShowSpeed?

American Internet personality IShowSpeed rose to fame in early 2021 from streaming on platforms YouTube and Twitch. Multiple controversies from harassing fans to accidentally showing sexual content on stream resulted in his ban on Twitch. The streamer now is fully located on YouTube and other social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. No information about IShowSpeed’s age or name is available as of right now. However, fans speculated IShowSpeed to be 17 years old. Now all of that out of the way, lets get into how this wager occurred in the first place.

How It Happened

IShowSpeed began this wager while trying to load up Fifa 22 on his Playstation 4 stating “If this game doesn’t load or it gives an error message I’m breaking the ps4!” After the game managed to work properly, his fans were upset spamming in his chat “BREAK THE PS4!” IShowSpeed after seeing the outrage decided to start setting wagers with people and If he lost, the consequences would be to destroy the gaming console. After battling it out with Banaalgeneraal ultimately IShowSpeed lost the soccer match. It was time to break the console!

The Destruction

IShowSpeed destroyed the console in a way nobody would imagine. IShowSpeed unplugged the console and took out a lighter! He had flashbacks of the firework scenario and decided to do it elsewhere. (Context for the firework scenario here> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nwvc1r7QOs) IShowSpeed goes outside, sets an angle, and lights it on fire. As soon as it starts he blows it out! Come on man! Don't worry, this article isn’t clickbait. After a bit of Speed stalling, he eventually breaks the console.

The Destruction (For Real This Time)

The streamer gets a friend to videotape the console being obliterated. They head outside and the viewers watch in awe. 3, 2, 1, the boom heard around the world. IShowSpeed has demolished his very own PS4.

After smashing the Play Station IShowSpeed starts lighting the console on fire AGAIN! The deed was done!


Though IShowSpeed smashed his only Play Station in his home, at least he has enough money to buy a new PS5 from that 1 stream. I guess that's a happy ending right?
